Buckeye Limited and Ohio Central Dennison Train Fest

Post by chuchubob »

I rode Bennett Levin's Buckeye Limited from Philadelphia's 30th Street Station to the Ohio Central Dennison, Ohio, Train Fest on Friday July 30 and bAck on August 2. Power was Juniata Terminal PRR E8's 5711 and 5809, built for the PRR in 1951 and 1952, respectively.

Our on-train accommodations were on Juniata Terminal's Warrior Ridge,

which was coupled to Pennsylvania 120,

which we were able to use at times.

A highlight of the Train Fest was GTW Northern 6325, which was used on excursion trains.
